to buck up, adam green of the progressive change campaign committee. thank you both for joining us. now, adam, no whining, okay? >> okay. >> no whining. >> that's a deal. >> just don't whine, we're going to start with eric. eric, let's start with another quote in your interview, where the president says, if people now want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren't serious in the first place. if you're serious, now's exactly the time that people have to step up. now, here we have another "rolling stone" quote that's causing trouble. this is after general mcchrystal ended his career with "rolling stone" quotes thanks to you guys. was this one of those things like in the mcchrystal interview where he maybe didn't quite realize what the impact would be once this was in print? >> no, i think in this case the president knew exactly what he was doing. he sends a clear message to democratic voters that they need to get out to the polls this november. i think the white house position and the white house and the president's own perspective comes across very clearly in this
